Singing to Relax during Labor

I have helped many women through the wonderful miracle of labor and birth over the last 20 years and am always brought to tears as new life enters the world.  It has always been a huge honor and privilege to help families prepare for their births and to assist them through their labors and deliveries.  It brings me great pleasure to help women have healthy, fulfilling birth experiences.

It is very sad to me, however, that so many women face childbirth equipped with so much bad information and fear; which, consequently, leads to greater pain and less-than-fulfilling birth experiences.  It doesn’t have to be that way! 

Here is a video of a woman singing through labor as a way to stay focused and relaxed– just before the home birth of her 10 lb baby.  It is beautiful and encouraging.
